With the Our Gifted Kids Podcast
As a parent of three gifted children I am here to talk about all things gifted…
Because I’ve been where you are now, wondering what to do and where to get help. Feeling alone and isolated and like ‘one of those parents’. Wondering what alternate reality I’d just fallen into?
